This is the Shaman Energy card Reading for the week starting Monday 2020/11/30

Luminous Warrior

The Luminous Warrior has no gender and enemies in this world or the next. Impeccable in word and deed, he or she focuses on their light rather than on what hides in the dark. The Luminous Warrior casts no shadow only radiant energy like the sun and can transform the most terrible enemy into their ally. Power comes not from the sword but from speaking truth at all costs.

Now is the time to focus on your positive traits and make sure they are clear to all around you. The positive in you is your light, your presence and power. The intention in that power is what helps you manifest what you want in life. Focus on what makes you strong, vibrant and full of natural wisdom and beauty. None of us is perfect, do not let worry or negative thoughts misdirect you, or, worry you.  Always, focus on positivity and what you do well. 

When you focus on positive actions and what you do well, you strengthen those traits in you and the universe takes notice. There will be little need for action, as you resolve all situations from within yourself.

Mistakes you have made in the past should not be repeated, whether it’s friendships, romantic relationships or work. Do not let yourself repeat what does not serve you or dulls your presence. If the thought of doing so brings anger, release it. Do not hurt the yourself or the people who are dear to you.

Upper World

To the shaman the Upper world is a place of light, strength and power. It is filled with angels, spirits and souls of those who have ascended. It is a place of divine help, a place to visit when Soul Journeying to find answers to help someone in need. Your destiny holds the map to who you will become and what you will be. The Upper World is a place of potential, possibility and opportunity. 

The Upper world is the place of the Ancient Ones, and their Ancient Wisdom. It is the Upper World where spirits of the dead, your parents, and siblings, your pets and all animals you have loved and cared for go when they ascend to a higher plane.

We are in a time of pandemic and illness. Immense distraction and tests of our ability to stay in our personal light and connected with our possibilities and opportunities. Now, more than ever, this is the time to be alone and quietly concentrate on your great potential and undreamt-of possibilities. It is time to look at your life positively and also to think of the future in the same way.

If you need help, it’s alright to call on your spirits and guides, even if you do not know who they are. Simply ask “all my spirits and guides… please help me with this… ” and speak about what you need help with.

Soul Retrieval

Soul Retrieval is very much a Shaman’s role and purpose. It is one thing a shaman will do to someone who asks for help when they feel lost and confused. Loss and confusion are often indications a part of the persons soul, is missing, or has been stolen. An injury, accident or other traumatic event may have fragmented the persons soul. The shaman will use their skill and knowledge in Soul Retrieval to collect all the fragments and reintegrate them, making the person whole again. In doing so the Shaman banishes the pain that caused the fragmentation.

All of us have events in our lives that take something from us, fragment us. Things that make us doubt, and feel incomplete. This is a message for immediate action, it is time to reflect on those events and what we were like before and after. Do not dwell over old wounds, fears, doubts, anxieties, and problems. Releasing these brings back your essential essence. 

Taming the Wind

A feather comes from a bird. It is a symbol of flight and freedom. It is also used in soul space clearing – a smudging ceremony to push away and banish all essence and spirits that is of lower and darker energy. When you use the feather this way you are calling the Great Spirit, or “Spirit” into your material world. This is a good thing, a very, very good thing. 

Find some quiet time. If you have a feather hold it, if not, think of one you have seen. It is time to start a journal. A journal need not be a book, though that is traditional format. It can be a Word document with each section having a date and your observations, hopes, dreams and thoughts typed there. The journal will include all your thoughts and positive actions, and intentions.

Release fears doubts, anxieties, and worries to bring back your essential essence is a positive, clearing of your spirit and your personal space that influences you. Become a good listener, listen to what is said, not what you think or want to be said. Listening this way helps prevent confusion and misunderstandings.

So, let’s get to the subject of this Podcast…

Corn represents the mother; it represents sustenance and tangible abundance. Corn is material prosperity, good fortune in a form that fills the bellies, hearts and minds of many. It tells us there is more than enough to go around.

You have dreams and hopes for the future. A farmer knows that hard work is required to help what they have planted grow and be abundant. Your dreams have required hard work to bring them to where they are today. When storms ravage their fields, farmers still go out to help their plants grow. They have faith that they will reap a harvest, even if at the moment they are not sure of it. 

Like a farmer, you must continue working on your field of dreams.

Now the spirit of the Corn. The card comes to honor and show you a bountiful harvest. 

This is the time to reap the rewards of hard work and trust, whether those rewards are financial or the kind of prosperity measured in quality rather than quantity. You are so blessed when this symbol appears. 

Don’t forget to share your good fortune.

Also, beware of shortcuts to your dreams or a fast track being offered to you now. They will not bring the good fortune you think they will. 

Feelings of entitlement or an expectation to get something for nothing. This is a time for gratitude, perseverance, and humility for what you receive. Know that working hard to make your dreams happen fills your dreams with substance and energy. A shortcut does not, it creates hollow dreams and lack of appreciation or understanding of your dreams for you personally. Respect the energy required to make your dreams reality and respect what you have put into your dreams.

Release any insecure thoughts of scarcity, feeling that there is not enough, or worry that someone else could take what is yours. Know that the universe will always provide, but you must be in a relationship with it in order to receive. You will reap what you sow. Take heart; even if you didn’t plant well and have conjured up the illusion of a drought, there is always a new season to begin again.

The Ancient Ones are shamans who defeated death and escaped the tyranny of time. They come from the past and they understand what it means to walk the earth as we do in flesh and bone. Living now in infinity they counsel us after we say yes to our calling. They are available to help us attain our full realization.

The Ancient Ones are inviting you to reach for the future and help birth a new destiny for the Earth. Go ahead; find out who you will become 10,000 years from now. If you accept the invitation, great power and blessings will come your way and allow you to craft a new destiny for yourself. Do not hesitate to bite off more than you can chew, because you have unlimited spiritual resources available now.

The Ancient Ones ask you to examine your attitudes and actions and be sure that they are of the highest integrity. Not forgiving an ancestor (or yourself) is keeping you from the freedom you seek. Remember this is no longer your karma. You can break the chains that once bound you to the family drama and be free of your generational curses. Forgive the ones you need to release. Honor your biological ancestors by lighting a candle to them.

To sacrifice means “to make sacred.” The sacrifice is an offering of gratitude made from the heart, a feast of love prepared for Spirit. In olden days, sacrifices sometimes involved rituals in which blood was offered to the gods. In the Bible, Yahweh preferred Abel’s sacrifice of one of his lambs to Cain’s offering of vegetables and fruits. Quetzalcoatl, the Lord of the Dawn, came to teach that Spirit preferred songs and our prayers to the blood of humans or animals.

Sacrifice asks that you offer to Spirit that which is most precious to you. Your love and devotion, your energy and your creativity. You will be elevated to the altar at which you have been praying and meet the divine at the table with the heavenly feast. You are a welcome guest in this banquet. Your heart is the only worthy offering you can bring. Life has been generous with you in so many ways!

What is the one person or thing that you feel you cannot live without? It is you, yourself. It is time to offer yourself to Spirit so that your life may unfold as it is destined too. You have sacrificed yourself and your dreams for too long in preference to helping and guiding others. Rededicate yourself to your own journey, and the gifts given to you for YOUR journey. You have more than enough. When you “make sacred,” you open the doors to infinite wealth! Do not delay.

So, let’s get to the subject of this Podcast…

The staff is the symbol of authority. It appeared in the reading for 2020/10/19. This repeating message tells you have not acted. The shaman’s staff is the home of a helping spirit the shaman uses during his healing practices. The spirit in the staff helps and guides and supports you physically and emotionally to find the right course of action. It tells you to move the tip of the staff forward so you can take the step you are intended to take.

The staff again reminds you of the impermanence of all things, and that your authority must come from your deep longing to serve.

Now is the time to study your life path, the next step on your journey. As you ponder the step, recognize that you have already decided to take it, what is missing in action. Use the strength and balance the spirit in the shaman’s staff gives you to move from the negative and inaction to the positive and action. Do It Now! 

The Heart of Sky is Creation. It is love and the life force making all things possible. 

To the shaman the sky is air, one of the essential five elements. Air is flow, movement strength and force. A strong wind that really has no substance can blow over a strong tall tree as well as a building if it is not built well or insecure.

Think of anger, discomfort, fear, unhappiness, even minor illness such as a headache. Negative thoughts and fears. Those thoughts and fears will make you unhappy, feel down or depressed. Let the wind blow those away and leave your psyche clean and clear, and refreshed.

The sky is also space because through air we see the stars and the void between them, space is also an essential element for the shaman. Let yourself be open to the wonder you are seeing and relax. Let the infinity of space come into your being and give you a sense of limitlessness.

When you concentrate on space your mind is clearer, less cluttered and more energetic. You have less tension; you feel less disrupted. You can sit back and see the big picture and at the same time, seize the opportunities coming to you because you have more space to accommodate them.

The Heart of Sky reminds you that you are a channel for the original energy of creation. Become the paintbrush, the canvas, and the artist, all guided by the Heart of Sky. Set your intention, ethically and clearly, and allow the universe to take care of the details.

You may feel responsible for everything and everyone. Perhaps you think you have to do it all alone. This takes you into a dark hole where you lose trust in the natural order of the cosmos. Shed your lofty sense of duty, and recognize that this is a false prison of your own making. You can open the door and set yourself free in an instant.

Tiny and beautiful, hummingbirds fly enormous distances relative to their size. They migrate between North and Central or South America to feed on the nectar available in the summer flowers. They are fiercely territorial and protect their home vigorously. As the hummingbird drinks its high-octane nectar to fuel itself it shows us how important what we eat is. Only eat what beneficial and nutritious.

The hummingbird bypasses flowers which may be attractive but do not have enough nectar, so must you bypass opportunities that are less than what they seem. Pay attention to the details of offers that come your way.

When you hear the buzzing of hummingbird wings, that is the sound of a hummingbird looking at a new adventure.

Trust that your spiritual guides have brought you to the right place, the right moment, now it is up to you to take bold action and like the hummingbird drink the nectar. Trust that success is assured, even if there are still tests and challenges. Know that all will be well because the All is in the small.

Shaman Energy Card Readings for Week of 2020/11/09

So, let’s get to the subject of this Podcast…

The Beloved. Spirit exits in each and every one of us. We are in love when we recognize Spirit in another. That is when we truly fall in love. As we mature and we are able to recognize Spirit more deeply in ourselves, we begin to see it more deeply in others and can understand it in them.

Spirit in another is not surface or ego love. Let the other person show their true selves. Give them time and yourself time to understand each other. If they are only acting as a mirror, reflecting your own surface desires and hopes, and you do not recognize this, you will endure false emotions and hurtful love which will damage both of you for some time to come.

Open your eyes and proceed cautiously in a new relationship.

When Standstill appears, we are asked to pause. We are moving too fast, or we are moving in the wrong direction. Now is the time to stop, look around and observe your situation. We need to sit down if we are standing or lay down if we are sitting. If we are stuck and not moving forward, we need to rest. Non action, is action, if we use the time and the energy it gives us correctly.

Standstill may also appear when nothing is happening, we are not progressing and there is a feeling the universe has forgotten us and is not sharing anything with us anymore. Remember, no one or thing can move constantly without rest being required. Allow yourself to rest now. 

Rest is also peace. Allow peace to flow through you as information and facts come to you. When they do, consider them peacefully and generously and relax as the wheel of fortune spins in your favour. For now, enjoy the beauty that is pausing before more action. Enjoy it. Control the egoic mind stop it from burning your precious energy and creating worry, doubt, anxiety and fear. Let the universe bring all the parts together for the highest good. Go and play, recharge, and take the focus off whatever has stalled. Life will get busy again for you sooner than you think.

Recognize that the egoic mind also likes to engage in endless analysis – analysis paralysis – that leads to no action but consumes vital energy. Analysis paralysis blocks you and those around you. Now is the time to consider whether you are going in the right direction in a relaxed manner. You have been given this time to stop a project, to exit before damage and without any cost. Your thoughts and deeds at this time are elegant and balanced because nothing is interfering with them. When something doesn’t go the way you think it should, remember the following: what is yours cannot be taken away.

The Sorcerer is the basis of dark power. Dark power is destructive, it is the part of the human psyche that is self-centered, jealous, and harms others, or seeks to harm others without any regard for them. It symbolizes the unconscious beliefs and ideas that foster separation, conflict, and scarcity.

When the Sorcerer enters your circle, you’re being called to look at how your beliefs around scarcity and self-centered fear manifest in your world. 

Examine the destructive part of your psyche that misuses power or harbors feelings of resentment, vengeance, lust, greed, bigotry, or hatred. 

Maybe because of your actions, or, purposeful inaction, you have harmed someone. The Sorcerer is here, now to challenge you, change your approach, your thinking, your habits, your wishes and goals. You have a second chance. Correct your course and practice not blaming others for the darkness that lives inside you. Make peace with it and choose another way.

Have you been feeling out of sorts because you’ve been faced with your own character flaws and the pain that you inflict on others when you are out of alignment? Radical self-acceptance is called for now. 

You must reconcile these darker aspects of your nature so you don’t behave irresponsibly and cause more harm to yourself and the ones you love. It’s time to come out of denial and accept responsibility for your words and deeds. 

When you meet the energy of the Sorcerer with humility, this destructive power transforms into grace, grace you can use in service to the higher good. Perhaps it’s time to make amends. Do it. It will set you free from the shadows and let you step into the Light.

Shaman Energy Card Reading for Week of 2020/11/02

What this is – Hello and welcome to the “The Shaman Podcast”

So, let’s get to the subject of this Podcast…

The Sun is power, brightness, energy, it is good fortune. It is the sun that gives energy to the world, to the plants and all living things, including you. It is celebrated for the beauty of its sunrise and sunset. It can also be destructive, a scorching summer day.

Right now, in North America, it is fall, mornings are dark and nights start early. Events that send us to our secluded space. To have a nap and draw in emotionally. But this card showing up now tells you your brightness, humour, and fun are needed by the people you know. There is too much seriousness in the world and the world needs you. It is time to get out and shine like the sun.

The day is brightened by the sun but that is only half of the 24 hours in a day. The night, brightened by the moon, which reflects light form the sun, has its value and its charms. Do not put all your energy into the daylight, keep some for the night. This is a message not to send out all your energy during the day and have nothing left for the night. Also, as you send out your energy do not compete with or be overcome by the energy for others.

The medicine wheel is a sacred hoop marked by the four cardinal directions honored by shamans and other spiritually awake people. As a circle, it contains the energy of the cycle of life, of existence for all people, all animals, and all plants. 

To manifest clear blue skies in your life, it is important that you take a look at certain aspects of your existence. Enter the medicine wheel from the south and reflect on how you are still clinging to events from the past. Continue to the west and notice which relationships are toxic and drain your energy. Step into the north and ask yourself: “Do I know my passion and do I show it?” End at the east, visualize how you want to live the next chapter of your life. It is up to you how much time you spend in each direction—minutes, days, or months. But when you are done, make sure to step outside the wheel and contemplate your journey.

Healing is important to you, start it NOW! Healing is not easy. Seek out a Reiki Master/Teacher, or a White Shaman to help and guide you. Now is the time to take a step forward, to heal and also recognize your life path purpose. Every journey of a thousand miles starts with one step, so says the Chinese proverb, choose your path and take that step, and do not deviate from it. Do not look down at your feet, look up and forward.

The witness observes. He or she sees without taking action. Action is the second stage of assessing your situation. Be in the moment and sense and feel the depth of your unique perspective. Then, and only then, take action. The outcome will be better for ourselves and for anyone who has asked us for help, and guidance. Sometimes we can be so still that we are a mirror for the other person. Then, through our presence, they receive their own answers.

Your guides have been with you since birth, they are here to help you if you will let them. They are your allies in all things. Because you reach out with your fingers and hands the impression is that you are doing, making things happen. This is not always true. 

It is time for you to get out of the way and let your angels and guides lead and unfold creations, wishes, and see your personal happiness in ways that you would not have considered. Find stillness and let the intent of your life path reveal itself.

Now is the time to be aware of what you can do, what you have been thinking about but not acted on. Now is the time to let change happen. Do not resist and do not let your egoic mind that resists change take back control. It has been leading you for too long. 

Now is the time for YOU to lead.
